Bustin' Loose In My Mailbox!!!!

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren

I haven't gotten new books for weeks and weeks (it feels like). I've been trying to catch up on some reading, but I tell ya, I was gonna bust out of that constricting plan at any moment, and I went a little crazy this week.  I got more books than I read, so it's a good thing I'm participating in a Read-a-thon or two!!!  The Dewey Read-a-thon is giving me a BOOST which will continue as I participate with Tiffany at Book Cover Justice all week.

The following delicious reads were accumulated on my Nook or Kindle-on-computer:
(click on the cover to add to see Goodreads!)

  Thoughtless (Thoughtless, #1)  Becoming A Butterfly

I posted an author interview & link to free download of Thoughtless this week.  In case you need to add this pretty cover and story to your own collection!!!!

From NetGalley for review:

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)  The Girl in the Clockwork Collar (Steampunk Chronicles, #2)

From the library:

Echoes of Betrayal (Paladin's Legacy, #3)  Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)

Oh... and I can't forget 20 copies of Ender's Game ready to pass out to the "Success" class of reluctant readers at the local midschool!!!!  I'm so happy to be able to participate in World Book Night!!!  What's awesome is, there were over 20 boxes of books still waiting to get picked up from my nearest Barnes & Noble... so my Northwest neck-o-the-woods is getting lots of books for this wonderful event!!!  I can't wait to follow up on all the success stories!!  I'll be linking up to Sheila's list over at Book Journey with other Givers by Tuesday morning. I hope I can get a picture of the mid-schoolers with their books!!!  Woop!!

I like to review what I did this past week... sorta helps me keep my brain straight. (And I need all the help I can get!!!!)

Ah... now see?!  Now I know why I had so much trouble adding more reviews and author interviews this week!!!  Lol. I was wondering if I was falling behind, but I'm not even counting the Winning post on Wed or the Feature & Friday fun... or the Small Blogs, Big Dreams Giveaway!!  (I think that one ended last night?)  So I probably need to cut back a little to fit all the wonderful author interviews I got ready to go up.  So many things to post, so little time. Hilarious.

Thanks for stopping by, Sunday Saloners and everyone!!

Happy Earth Day!!
